Photo Submissions
At the Stiglianese Cousin's party in 2006, Joe Strus suggested that I put up a page for photo's which are e-mailed to me. Of course he hasn't sent a single photo yet. Some of this stuff will get moved later. I'm trying to get everything up here that friends and relatives send in. It's not well organized, but there aren't too many here, so you can just scan down the page to see everything.
Three of the Kirks have been so good at sending in pix to post, that I've set up a separate page for their family photos.

May 1, 2009 - Dylan Bonilla
Linda sent me the middle photo in the left column for posting, BUT... there was a teensy weensy link to a facebook file with all these other Dylan pix, sooooo... Here's the 'lil guy, and a couple with his Dad. Notice that right hand raise! Can't you just see him at the raffle... "I've got it! I win!" He's getting pumped already!
April 15, 2009 - Marciniak Grandkids
Stanley just sent these photos and asked that I post them. Since I'm now a grandfather-to-be, the request is understandable.

That looks like Gwendolyn in the upper photo with Stan, although the binky makes it a little difficult to discern with certainty. Stan is living his motto that "It's never too early!" as he instructs her on how to handle a dustpan.

I'm informed that the lower photo consists of:
Left: Gwendalyn Grace Baker (2 years 6 months)
Center: Gianna Marie Lavaty (1 year)
Right: AnaBella Lynn Barrett (1 year 4 months)
October 19, 2008 - Dave & "W"
Here's an autographed photo of President Bush and his favorite Marine 1 pilot after a jog. The favorite (and best) pilot happens to be a body-double for Dave Kirk!

Okay, when you look at it closely, George's head looks Photoshopped, but Dave swears that it's real... the photograph anyway. We're still not sure about George's head.

June 13, 2008 - Hofer Pix
I don't recall if Cathy said this was Sarah's birthday, or just a father/daughter outing, but Darlys took her out to the Badlands. She sure is lucky. My kids were happy when we tossed them scraps of food. Anyway, it looks like they had fun hiking, rock climbing and fishing. That central photo of Sarah, standing on the hill, waaaay off in the distance is my favorite.

Cathy said they burned off some acreage to let it grow back to "natural prarie". She didn't promise to populate it with buffalo though.

The Hofers are letting Becky read banned books. They better hope that cousin Stanley

doesn't see! Forcing their kids into slave-labor painting chores might help to keep them in line though.
October 4, 2007 - Abby "Punkin" Kopf
We can tell who the new parents are on THIS block! Here's the pumpkin girl, herself... Abby Kopf.

Now did they buy all those pumpkins... or just plunk her down on some strangers' lawn?

September 19, 2007 - Peter's Boat
Peter Kirk is going to have to fill us in a little better on exactly why he's collecting this boat in Alabama (or someplace south), and floating it over to Hawaii. Whatever the reason, it sounds like fun. I guess you just can't stop those adventurous Kirks.
April 5, 2007 - Sam's First Communion
Here's Sam Matei, looking angelic at his First Communion. I'm sure Linda Sue and Marty know by now that it doesn't last... too bad.

Brothers Dominic and Vinnie got a few mug shots in there during the BIG occasion, too.

At the church, Sam got some public speaking practice in before the big, class photo-shoot.

March 29, 2007 - Abby Kopf
Heeeeeeeeeeeere's Abby!

Abigail Mary Kopf
DOB November 28, 2006
I must admit that I've had the left photo in the middle row for a month or so, but Erin just sent in the remaining shots of her beautiful daughter. Abby is our great niece. Not just a good niece... but a GREAT niece.

Upper left, Grandma gets to hold her. Then there's Christmas. Looks like Dad is holding her in the upper right.

Mid left is dated 2/14/07 and mid right is 2/21/07.

Wow! She just "put on her face" in the bottom photos from March/07. Whatta difference a month makes! She's smiling because she knows she's got cool parents. That's gotta be Erin's feet in the lower left. I think Louie might make a bigger indent in the sofa cushion.

March 11, 2007 - Vincent's First Birthday
My Cousin, Vinnie

Anne & Bob Calabrese's youngest daughter, Linda Sue, is my godchild. Her little guy is... Vincent Thomas, born 2/28/06.

Here's photos from Vinnie's first birthday! Linda Sue says he's really enjoying his Zuchini Muffin. That's because he's only one year old and hasn't developed taste buds yet. He'll learn!

He does look pretty excited. Maybe it's because he just socked his brother in the eye.
